Thomas McGregor is a self-centered department store employee who wants only one thing out of life: to climb the corporate ladder.
Of course, life rarely goes as planned.
It started going downhill when he learned that the company slackie got the much-coveted promotion. Then, Thomas discovered that a great uncle (“Mr. McGregor”) passed away and left him a rural cottage. He hates the countryside. Soon thereafter, he got fired.
So instead of designing picturesque displays in big-city store aisles, he’s now cleaning up an old house and tending to an out-of-control garden. And we haven’t even mentioned the rabbits. There are five of them, including one who has a mischievous streak. Thomas hates rabbits.
Yet these cute-and-furry-creatures live with the next-door neighbor Bea, an animal lover who just happens to be single. Thomas and Bea surely would make a good couple – that is, if he doesn’t kill her pets first.
It’s all part of the new film Peter Rabbit (PG), which is out in theaters this weekend and stars Domhnall Gleeson (The Last Jedi) as Thomas, Rose Byrne (X-Men: Apocalypse, Annie) as Bea, James Corden (The Late Late Show) as Peter Rabbit, Daisy Ridley (The Last Jedi) as Cottontail, Margot Robbie (The Legend of Tarzan) as Flopsy, and Elizabeth Debicki (Guardians of the Galaxy) as Mopsy.
The film is based on the books by Beatrix Potter and – like Paddington — features computer-generated animals interacting in the real world.
